What in the world is going on in the world? I'm reading more often in the news these days, not only about suicide, but about their desire to kill many others along with themselves.
As most of us are aware, 53 year-old Joe Stack crashed his airplane into a building yesterday in Austin, Texas with almost 200 IRS workers inside. He had a grudge with the IRS and it seems his intentions were to kill many innocent IRS workers as well.
What really makes me scratch my head are some of the people interviewed that knew Stack and spoke well of the man. His ex-wife, Ginger Stack, of whom he was married to for 18 years said he was a "good man with good values."
When Stack moved to Austin, TX in 2004, he joined a band playing the bass. Drummer Ric Furley said he was a dependable guy with a good sense of humor. He went on to say, "He didn't have an attitude. He didn't try to one-up anybody. He was the perfect bandmate. I never saw him angry. I have no way to relate to him as an angry human being. I don't even know where he stood politically. He was the nicest guy. He didn't seem to have any issues." This is the same man that intentionally crashes his plane into a building.
I have many of the same frustrations Joe Stack has, in fact, after working for corporate America for so many years, they completely killed my spirit and I can no longer work for idiots ever again. The nice to my face, back stabbing co-workers took away my faith in the human race, but I don't have the desire to kill any of them. I believe in karma and their day will come, if it hasn't already for some of the jerks.
With more and more stories in the news these days about some of these so called "nice people" going on killing sprees, it just goes to show you we really don't know who people are inside.
Just to give you an example. My mother goes to church every time the doors open. She gives a HUGE amount of money to the church, donates her time, just a real sweet woman. But when it comes to me and my dad, she rarely says much to us, and when she does, especially with my dad, she's downright mean and hateful. I know her church friends would be shocked at the difference in her personality when with them as opposed to how she acts around her own family.
Maybe they treat their family members with disgust to, who knows anymore who people truly are?
